Let's just talk Washington County.
The solid conservative community we live in did exactly as I had predicted.
Predictions: Both ref’s will bite the dust - buh bye. Fernandez will surprise us with a superior lead over Dvers. Abrahamson will be purchasing plane tickets for a nice long permanent vacation. Cain will edge Grundahl with a small margin. Stepanski will stomp the other candidates.
Fernandez over Evers.

Tony Evers 9226 40.63%

Washington County is, has always been, known for it's very conservative stance. Though the state vote put Evers and Abrahamson on top, Washington County spoke loud and clear.
Putting Evers behind the driver's wheel of the DPI will give us more years of Libby Burmeister cloning. We can expect the public school systems to go head-first deeper into the liberal cesspool of life. Who endorsed Evers? Here are just a few...
- Planned Parenthood
- Wisconsin LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) PAC
- Governor Jim Doyle
- Senator Russ Feingold
That should say enough about Evers.
The referenda for the WB School District was pretty tight with Ques. #2. I thought that might happen as Badger could really use the TLC and we need to start "somewhere." Though I voted no on both, I am pretty content with the referenda turnout. The overall voice of West Bend on all the issues above backs what I have been saying over and over again:
We are a community that voted according to it's values; conservative, traditional, solid. We have spoken.
